Sean's been on this same trajectory for sometime now. He fantasizes himself as a humble aid worker who ultimately must save the villagers through drilling water wells, handing out condoms, and engaging in extravagant acts of violence. During my 25 year aid worker career, I never witnessed the violent white Jesus Sean career approach ever work out, but could it be because of my own lack of vision and messiah complex? Could I up my game with better diarrhea prevention programming and superior, larger calibre fire power. Perhaps I should view this genre as instructional rather than merely entertaining.
I'm not worthy, Jesus Sean, but I'll sure give it my best shot, heh.
Sean, Humbly Magnificent Champion of the Down and Out, we salute you.
I meet him at a funeral...of all places.....he is one arrogant man....Sorry
He was very kind to come to a funeral that was way out of his way.
I'll give him that.
Pretty good story. A little vague at times. But lots of shooting and killing (Isn't that what we Americans like?)
That and smoking. The tobacco companies pay the studios for product placement. Really...That is no lie.

successful hit, killing the minister for mining, he then has to disappear for a time after the high-profile
Eight years later again in the Congo he works as a humanitarian aid worker trying to atone for his past
deeds, however when the camp is attacked by gunmen he realizes that he was the target.
He now has to find out the how's and why's of the attack he travels to London to make a start meeting
up with an old friend 'Stanley' (Ray Winstone) who will again offer help later on.
He begins to learn that he is in fact the last living member of the mercenary team of eight years past....
Now in 'Barcelona' he comes across and old associate 'Felix' (Javier Bardem) who is less than pleased to
meet up with a ghost of the past especially as he is now married to 'Jim's' ex 'Annie' (Jasmine Trinca)
The old-flame still flicker's for both 'Jim' and 'Annie' but, when invited to dine at 'Felix' and 'Annie's home
under the pretence of 'Felix' needing to speak to 'Jim' the house is attacked, could it be his old associate
had set him up.
There is much worse yet to come, the organisation that had exploited the resources of Congo cannot afford
to have 'Jim' tell 'Interpol' what he knows.
The film is well worth a viewing, there is plenty of action throughout much of the film, fire-fights and hand
to hand grappling.
There are many sequences of graphic violence and frequent use of colourful language.
